Sterre de Jong

Name: Sterre de Jong
Function: Producer & Managing Director

I was invited to join Breaking Ground in the early spring of 2015 as a producer
and liaison between Breaking Ground, film schools and students. Through events
promoting 1st and 2nd year student films I'm planning to establish a strong
connection between these entities while also facilitating the students' access to
film markets, distribution platforms and international coproductions.

Apart from working at Breaking Ground I’m graduating from Utrecht School of
the Arts as a director and producer for documentary films. In the next few years
I am planning to develop my skills in this field, whilst also trying to work on
researching and setting up projects within an interactive and multi-disciplinary
